7.07. Should an employee be absent owing to sickness or an accident or on maternity, paternity or parental leave during the qualifying period and should that absence result in the reduction of that employee’s annual leave indemnity, the employee is then entitled to an indemnity equal, as the case may be, to 2, 3 or 4 times the weekly average of the wage earned during the period worked. The employee referred to in section 7.02 whose annual leave is less than 2 weeks is entitled to that amount in proportion to the days of leave credited to the employee’s account.
Despite the first paragraph, the annual leave indemnity may not exceed the indemnity to which the employee would have been entitled if the employee had not been absent or on leave owing to a reason set out in the first paragraph.
